Keep Choosing Love

Sections of this topic

    Last week, dealing with discouragement and confusion, I sat in meditation and heard the phrase, ‘Keep Choosing Love’. I was inspired to write the following prose.

    As we celebrate not only the life, but the Spirit, of Martin Luther King Jr., I offer these words to carry into your work and your everyday life. May these words remind you of King’s life work that taught us to love and forgive more deeply.

    In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.:

    “Keep Choosing Love”

    If you are carrying a heavy weight of resentment, Choose Love and Forgiveness

    If you are holding on to grudges and hatred, Choose Love and Understanding

    If you are carrying sorrow or doubt, Choose Love and Faith

    If you are hanging on to anger or pain, Choose Love and Compassion

    If you are having troubles letting go of worry, Choose Love and Hope

    If you are living in fear, Choose Love and Support

    If you want to expand yourself, Choose Love and Peace

    If you want to offer the best of Who You Are, Choose Love and Joy

    If there ever was a time for healing, hope, and understanding, It is Now!

    In the face of fear, anger, worry, stress, frustration, hopelessness:

    Keep Choosing Love

    Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.- Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968)
